When a harddrive starts clicking it's on it's way out.
Buy a new harddrive and at the same time get a USB to laptop harddrive adapter. You can reinstall XP with the recovery disks that came with your machine ans then slave your old drive to your laptop and recover your personal files.
If you really want to get technicalbuy an Apricorn housing: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817155602
And two new harddrives, fit one new harddrive to the Apricorn housing and try to install the EZgig cloning software to your dying Windows. You can clone your existing Windows install to the new harddrive in the Apricorn housing and then move that drive to your laptop, the second new harddrive can then be fitted to the Apricorn housing and used as an external harddrive.
EZgig comes with the Apricorn housing and you could even go so far as to create a clone of your Windows install to the new external harddrive. The Apricorn housings are excellent, they are small enough to carry in your laptop case and all they need for power is a USB port.

It won't complete the defrag. Does that mean the hard drive is going bad? The laptop is very slow, hard drive spins a lot.


You definitely should back up your files before trying to solve the issue. To defrag first check if you have enough free space and if some programs are running that are interrupting the task. Run a diskcleanup and chkdsk. The Windows defrag program will not defrag under less than 15% free space and also sometimes if other programs write to the disk while its running. So download the trial version of a reliable commercial defragger and try. (They will defrag in less than 5% free space and run in the background).

I have a VISTA laptop and when I download a program or new version of an existing program from the internet, it downloads ok but will not auto install?


Will it install when you double click the program, or right click and run ?
not many programs downloaded from the internet will auto install, like when you insert a CD

How to reset "A205-S5831" CMOS Password


This information is kept confidential by Toshiba. The only method I am aware of is by calling toshiba tech support. I Know they will ask for your information as well as proof of purchase. I "think" they may even require the machine to be sent to them.
Unfortunately this is the only method I am aware of to clear the bios/cmos password on a toshiba.
Good luck!

Processes and services running that slow or stop computer without any programs running other than desktop. 87% of physical memory used.


there are 95% chances of Viruses in your pc.

These days Very intelligent viruses are around, even anti virus cant detect them, as you can kill what you cant see.

Anyhow, the solution is to make the new windows insatlation. (dont forget to take the backup of your data b4 that)

Toshiba L300 with Launch Startup Repair Recommened on bootup.


If the hard drive is clicking then likely it is dead. I would call toshiba and warranty it. If they say its not under warranty then a hard drive should be no more than about 150 depending on the size
